Snapshot of Cornwall and the Counties

Located in the Eastern corner of The Great Waterway, Cornwall and the Counties boast a number of iconic festivals and fairs. The Glengarry Highland Games — the largest event of its kind outside of Scotland; The Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off — Ontario’s only hot air balloon festival; and the Williamstown Fair — Canada’s oldest agricultural fair, to mention just three. At Upper Canada Village discover what life was like in the 1860s or enjoy the annual Medieval Festival with a jousting tournament, period music and dance, and medieval games. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy walking, biking, jogging or rollerblading through the expansive, multi-use trails along the pristine St. Lawrence River. And don’t miss the live theatre at the Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg.
